NEW DELHI: Reliance Jio, the 4G entrant has tied-up with TeamF1 Networks, a subsidiary of D-Link (India) Limited, to launch fixed-line digital services with the help of a home gateway solution.

TeamF1 Networks’ Home Gateway Solution (HGW) is a comprehensive turnkey software package from TeamF1 enabling the next-generation of rich, auto-provisioned residential gateways and CPE routers deployed by Jio.

The partnership of Jio and TeamF1 offers HGW with capabilities like media storage / sharing, control of other DLNA and VoIP devices, home automation, security and lighting control. These intelligent HGW devices demand iron-clad security, rock-solid stability, high performance, and smart management of bandwidth through advanced QoS techniques.

“We are excited to partner with Jio and help them continue to play an imperative role in the Digital India Initiative for the country and benefit the generations to come. Going forward, our ‘connected-home’ partnership will explore solutions for home surveillance through IP cameras and video analytics, and for smart home through IoT sensors and actuators, data analytics, and machine learning technologies,” said Ted Kuo, CEO and Chairman of TeamF1 said in a statement.

Reliance Jio recently awarded a contract to US-based AirWire Technologies (AirWire) to offer the latter’s India manufactured connected car device to customers in India. The AirWire Connected Car device is being manufactured in partnership with Reliance Jio in India.

The Mukesh Ambani-led telco has also given an all-IP converged network contract to Cisco to further expand its existing multi-terabit capacity.
